Counting Words with Python 3

# The original code produces \ufeff in the result
# when I used it to count word frequency in Nias language texts.
# The improvement is found on https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17912307/u-ufeff-in-python-string
#
# The change is text = open('declaration.txt', mode='r', encoding='utf-8-sig').read()
import csv
import string
# Notes: For Nias texts be careful with "string.punctuation" below
